Run for CAMBA!

Although Jiaqi Duan is fit, she says she is not a runner, but she'll do her best to finish the NYCRUNS Prospect Park 5k & 10k on Saturday, April 20th benefitting CAMBA. As a new member of CAMBA’s Junior Board, Jiaqi chose the 5k run as her personal fundraising effort. She reached out by email to work colleagues and others through social media. " I also reached out to close friends personally and asked them to donate whatever they can afford," said Jiaqi. She may not be the fastest runner, but she now leads the pack among all fundraisers with a total amount of $2,000 in contributions to her team.
